Somebody logged into my Gmail account

I got a email from Gmail as follows:

Someone has your password

Hi,
Someone just used your password to try to sign in to your Google Account ******@gmail.com.
Details:
Monday, October 5, 2015 10:15 PM (West Africa Standard Time)
Lagos, Nigeria*
Google stopped this sign-in attempt, but you should review your recently used devices:

REVIEW YOUR DEVICES NOW
Best,
The Google Accounts team


I looked under REVIEW YOUR DEVICES NOW

I see a device logged in to my account from SAN GABRIEL, CA

I live in Michigan.

I changed the password and logged out of all the devices from Gmail.

This is scary. I don't how much info was taken from my account.

I am wondering if they could have downloaded all my email.

Any input is appreciated.

First step is to ensure the email is genuine and not a phishing attempt to get your password by making you think someone got your password.

Assuming it's genuine you should assume the worst. Change the password, double check secondary email forwarding, and change all passwords on all accounts.

I use a password manager so use very complex and unique passwords for every site.

Looks like it is genuine. I did change the passwords on all accounts.


What kind of Password Manager do you use? Thanks

I use KeePass. But I think Lastpass is more popular.

What I like about KeePass is I can maintain the master file on Google Drive and then sync talk time between all devices, including android.

RE: gmail acct

If you can still access your gmail acct quickly change the password. Do not use the link in the email sent to you it could be phishing attempt. Secondly if you have not already setup a secondary email acct in your profile do so now. Thirdly setup your mobile phone as a way you can verify proof it is you to gmail support. A good password manager is roboform. You can setup a unique password with it and if put notes into the profile for later. This works on windows PCs I don't know about macs. If you do these steps you should be ok.

LastPass got hacked I think. The best security is to write the password on a sticky note in doctor writing style.

Hi vk I am glad that worked for you. Going forward if anyone has a problem like this and gets an email as you did please don't click the link in it just let the email serve as an indicator that something may have happened and they should immediately log into their email acct and start the steps outlined above. Yahoo email users have a similar security measure they could use to obtain the same results. I have received that type of email so I am speaking from experience . Also what is a good solution is to not use a second email from the same provider as your primary email provider. If you have an email from your isp then use it in conjunction with your securing measures.

You're fine.

Change your password to something super secure, possibly 2 factor if you're truly worried.
